Hot on the heels of his Aussie tour, actor Will Ferrell turned up on a US news broadcast in Bismarck, North Dakota as anchorman Ron Burgundy.
Seriously. Not making this stuff up.
Clearly a stunt to help promote Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, he played it pretty straight during the half hour bulletin, digressing to mispronounce some of the words and throwing in a bit of banter about the weight of the sports dude, and quipping, “I’ve never seen fighting in a hockey match before. That was fascinating.”
If you can bear wading through the local news about kids meeting Santa and problems with the local speed limit you might get a chuckle or two.
